"Antarctica: A Year on Ice" is a visually stunning look at what it's like to spend an entire year on the planet's coldest, windiest and driest continent. While this close-up examination of a year spent in Antarctica does marvel at its nature -- the powerful storms, its endless winter nights, the 24 hours of daylight in summertime and the penguins and other native creatures -- it also focuses on what it's really like to live and work in a place that's so extreme. You'll get to see the lives of not just scientists, but also people like firefighters and convenience store clerks. "Antarctica: A Year on Ice" has played at film festivals around the world and received numerous accolades for this unique depiction of life on the world's most isolated and pristine continent.
